Description, female. Body length 3.54 mm. Wings subhyaline; metasoma dark castaneous. Head wide. Mandible with five distal teeth, wide, slightly angled, teeth not equally sized. Median clypeal lobe rounded, very short, truncate at apical margin; median clypeal carina hardly distinct from clypeus. With frontal process; antennal scrobe ecarinate. Eye large; circumocular suture present. Frontal angle of ocellar triangle obtuse; ocelli small. Vertex convex. Pronotal disc as long as wide, with transverse pronotal carina and series of foveae posteriorly followed by large foveae, and transverse pronotal carina followed by striae; transverse pronotal carina complete; posterior margin with posterior pronotal sulcus. Notaulus wide. Mesoscutellar disc with mesoscutellar sulcus wide; posterior mesoscutellar sulcus present. Metapectal-propodeal disc long; metapostnotal median carina complete; longitudinal ridges absent; metapostnotal-propodeal suture fused with first metapostnotal carina; paraspiracular carina present and conspicuous; metapleural carina present and conspicuous; metapectal-propodeal disc with short striae; propodeal declivity strigate. Mesopleuron with anterior fovea closed; mesopleural fovea closed; lower fovea closed; posterior fovea absent; mesopleural suture closed. Forewing with stigma developed; Rs&M vein not distinguished. Mesotibia not spinose; claws bifid. Metasomal segments sparsely setose. Genitalia. T9 with anterior arm long and overlapping 2vf; 1vv longer than genitalia body; 2vv shorter than 1vv length, abruptly narrowing apicad; 3vv short; 1vf slightly curved forward; 2vf slender, angled, and with dorsal lap strongly swollen posteriorly; 1rv not curved, ventral process large, and posterior process short; 2rv not curved.

Remarks. This new species differs from A. albistigmus  by having the body with green-blueish reflections; the wings clear hyaline; the mandible angled and with the distal teeth with different sizes; the clypeus rounded, very short, truncate at the apical margin, and with the median clypeal carina hardly distinct from the clypeus and angled; the circumocular suture present; the transverse pronotal carina and posterior pronotal sulcus followed by a series of large foveae; the notaulus wide; and the mesopleuron with the lower fovea closed and not divided, whereas A. albistigmus  has the body black; the wings bi-banded; the mandible slightly angled and with the two upper teeth wider than the others; the clypeus angulate, short, and with the median clypeal carina distinct from the clypeus and arched; the circumocular suture absent; the transverse pronotal carina and posterior pronotal sulcus without large foveae; the notaulus very narrow; and the mesopleuron with the lower fovea closed and divided.
